sweet treasures #6: another bag, just because…
Posted in fashion, handmade, stylists own, sydney October 5th, 2010 by pia

…it’s adorable. I found this pretty embroidered silk number in a little vintage boutique earlier this year, in a sweet seaside town outside of Sydney where my dear friend Jenni lives. We saw it together, both fell in love with it and spent the following moments passing it from one to another “no you have it”, “no you saw it first, you should have it” “no no, you have it”. Jenni insisted I take it, so I did. And now it lives with me here in Amsterdam. It’s a lovely summer bag, and even though I don’t get to use it much here in the north, I have it hanging on a hook in my bedroom where I can see it everyday and think of my dear friend.

    delicious – i say that because to me, it’s the colour of strawberry ice cream (with chocolate sprinklies!). i’m drawn to anything that’s pink!
    Pia, do you like my pinkish shades knitted figs?
    love your site. Claire.

    It’s adorable. My Mum has a vintage silk scarf in that exact same pink and a very similar pattern…. which I covet very much 🙂

    Pink is one of the more important colours.

    What a sweet little bag! And the sentiment attached to it is even sweeter. 🙂

    so pretty 🙂 I love little finds like this. I also hang things around my bedroom that I’m not wearing/using but are too pretty to hide away!

    it’s so beautifully made! I love the color combination too… i’d also display it in my home instead of just wearing it out on special occasions. what a find!

    This is so cute – I can just imagine the soft pink and dark brown blending into the dark woods of the boat.
